How gut bacteria controls gene expression through “interspecies communication”

Highlights •Microbiome-derived NO promotes widespread S-nitrosylation of the host proteome •Interspecies S-nitrosylation regulates miRNAs, gene expression and host development •Microbiota control host function by shaping the post-translational landscape Summary Bioactive molecules can pass between microbiota and host to influence host cellular functions. However, general principles of interspecies communication have not been discovered. We show here
